History

Green Township was first created in 1809 as part of Stark County, Ohio. Green Township became part of Summit County, Ohio after its establishment in 1840.[3] Green had several unincorporated hamlets, most notably Greensburg.[4] The City of Green was declared a City in 1992.[5] A few years earlier, a three square mile section in the center of the township was incorporated as a Village and later merged with the rest of the township to become what is now the City of Green. Fred Ravagnani was elected the first mayor of the Village of Green.

The fairly recent incorporation of the city results in the city having no unique postal ZIP code; it is served by the Green post office, but only post office boxes are served by this ZIP code; no street addresses in Green have this ZIP code. Green street addresses are served by 5 different post offices, covering different parts of the city:

Green contracts with the Summit County Sheriff's Office for police service.[6]

Incorporation

The impetus for Green to become a city arose in part out of controversy generated by a letter supposedly written by former Akron City Schools superintendent Conrad Ott. The letter spoke of willingness by Akron to annex Green schools. Few voters realized that school districts are separate entities under Ohio law. Property annexation to a city does not change the school district. Nevertheless, the rally to save independent schools helped spur the drive to incorporate.
